Well played show from start to finish, Good aud. recording and clear as a bell.
Enjoyed first set it was smooth as silk and just flowed very freely.
Black Peter is a tru gem in this show.
Kick back and enjoy our youth in 1980 in the northeast.

Why people don't hold 1980 (and 1981 for that mattter) in higher regard is beyond me. I suppose an appreciation for audience tapes may be a prerequisite for maximum enjoyment of the shows during this fantastic year, but if you are in that camp, this archive holds an embarrassment of riches. Hot performances night after night, the only caveat being somewhat repetitive set lists. But, man oh man, did the Dead have their sh#t in a pile in 1980.

Subject: Nice Sounding Aud Show
This was a really nice Mother's Day show. the 1st set is very nicely played with a truly great Music Never Stopped. Set 2 just took off. The Scarlet/Fire is excellent. The transition between Stranger and Terrapin is flawless and unique... It's the only time I have heard where they don't end Stranger with the 3-beat rhythm, rather they just ease effortlessly into Terrapin , and then a classic Playing ijn the band. After drums is fairly standard, but well played. The sound is great for an audience show, and you get a real feel for what the show actually sounded like.

This was one of the better shows I saw, and among the best of this tour....both sets were good. It's one I'll always remember, glad to find it here- the first thing I downloaded. Big railroad blues was a treat. Great Music never stopped, and for set two, Garcia rarely turned up the way he does at the end of "Fire on the Mountain" and lets the feedback rip. Some feel this version of "going down the road feeling bad" was the best of the Brent era, can't say I disagree. The last part of set 2 is a bit of a let down compared to the rest of the show...well played, just nothing special song wise. Pretty good audience recording which gives a bit of an improvement over my tape. The previous night (Hartford) was also top notch. Thanks to the taper and all involved in making these recordings available.
